An unforgettable image

Dear Editor:

I watched the TV news recently with emotions alternating between horror and amusement as Republicans at the CPAC meeting rolled out a golden image of Donald Trump for the faithful to worship. I was immediately reminded of the biblical story of the golden calf. If I remember correctly that ancient experiment in idol worship was considered a supreme act of apostasy — the rejection of a faith once confused. It would be interesting to hear how modern “Christians” defend their continued support of Trump.
